ZPE Systems Makes Remote Hands Better
Retail and remote offices have IT needs but don’t necessarily have IT people there to troubleshoot a situation when things go south. We know your situation; You’re expected to deploy systems, prevent outages, and in the worst cases, fix things when they’re down. It’s all running fine for now…
… Until the phone rings. It’s the retail branch calling you with this familiar greeting: “Uh-oh, the network is down.”
Downtime is extremely costly and you know it! You’re considering the loss of potential sales, the money wasted while your team sits idle, unable to work – It’s not their fault the system is down, and even if it was… You’ve got to get it fixed! The responsibility falls on you and your not so technical set of “remote hands.”
What’s the move here -When you don’t have someone technical on-site, what do you do? “Remote hands” are serviceable, sometimes.. Do you take that gamble? Will you be able to guide that person through the process of getting things back up? That same set of remote hands could have easily been the cause of this mess in the first place.
Maybe they can fix it. You can guide them through each and every step of the process, you’re a great teacher with tons of patience right? They’ll either fix it following your orders, or make it worse. You’ll just have to find out…
What if you could catch the problem before it even got to that point?
What if you had a solution that you could deploy in all of your remote locations that gave you full access, control, logging and monitoring of your physical and virtual devices – You could see issues before they happened and take the right actions to prevent them. What if that same solution had Zero Touch Provisioning and added all your devices to your management platform automatically upon deployment – configuration would occur before hand and deploy without a hitch? What if that same device sent triggered alarms to you and was not only secure but dependable as well, having a 4G/LTE failover? What if?
